Thank you for your prayers....they are working!

It's Monday night and I wanted to write a post telling everyone just how much God has blessed me. If anyone ever questions the power of prayer I am living proof that it works! Two of my old babysitters when I was a child came to visit me recently with their families. They wanted their children to meet me since they pray for me daily. Every night before they go to bed I am in their prayers and I know God hears prayers.....especially the prayers of children.
The ONLY hope I have of getting better is through God. He is the only one with the power to heal my body. Since my accident the prayers that have gone up on my behalf has given me the healing I have experienced lately. I am so encouraged and uplifted by all the stories I hear of people following this blog daily. It really touches my heart to know that I can make a difference. I honestly don't feel like I have done anything really. My healing has been to glorify God, it is NOTHING that I am personally doing. I am committed to working out daily and getting stronger. My therapy sessions are going wonderful. I have made great progress in recent weeks. In my last therapy session with my PT I was able to move my ankle down. I would sit on the edge of my mat with my feet on the floor. My therapist would lift my toes and foot up and I was able to push my foot back to the ground. My therapist was feeling movement in my feet when I would push them down. PRAYER WORKS!!
I have NO DOUBT that I am on the road to recovery. This will be a very long process. I do not want people to think that I am just weeks or months away from walking. This journey may take years, but I am making progress EVERY WEEK! My body is slowly changing and I am experiencing new sensations everyday. The prayers will always be the number one thing I request. Some of the top Spinal Cord doctors in the U.S. have done all they can do. I MUST rely on God and BELIEVE in him without DOUBT that he can heal my body. I know that miracles happen today. I always look back to my first few months of my accident and look at the progress I have made and it reconfirms my faith in miracles. Please do not give up on me, pray without ceasing and we will see a miracle. I know that I have been called to spread the word of this miracle to others and I can not wait to share what God has done for me! PLEASE CONTINUE PRAYING FOR ME!!! Share this blog with your friends and family so that God can be glorified through the miracle he is working in my life!
I LOVE YOU ALL,
SO MUCH IN HIM!

Brent, I'm not sure I love being called an "OLD babysitter"!!!!!! Ha, the truth hurts.

It was great seeing you and your Mom and Dad! We will see you next time we are down if you are still in Leesburg!

Love you all!

Brent, I can see from your Blog comments that God is answering our prayers as inches of new nerves are growning closer and closer to your toes. Soon after the toes are moving the nerves will spread to all of the muscles and God will have, as you said, overcome the wisdom of modern medical science once again. A few more cases like yours and all those doctors will be believers! Keep up the great faith, it is your daily connection to God and it shows the Father you appreciate his gifts. Think positive, all other thoughts are a waste of time!

I am glad we were able to spend time with you and your family the other night. You are such an inspiration to so many people through your faith and this blog. I am so thankful that you have shown my children the power of prayer!

Your other "old" babysitter!
